In this session, panelists will explore the intersection of food, health and environment from a global perspective and with a focus on the importance of local extension activities. “Think global and act local” is the mantra at the intersection of the food we eat, the impact of food production on the environment and the role of food as our first medicine promoting health and wellness.
